@alexhollender_WMF yeh I think removing the indent looks better, but we should create a separate ticket to handle that rather than doing it as part of this task.

@ovasileva I don't think we would need the animation. @RHo brought up a good question: would we show the tooltip every time you collapse the table of contents, or only the first time? not sure if we even have a choice there?

to further clarify how this should work, when the icon has a badge:

  • the size of the icon (including the touch area) should not change
  • the spacing between the icons should no change
  • basically nothing should change, except the badge appearing : )

@Ladsgroup @TheDJ are there open design/UX questions? if so, I was thinking it could be great for you to come to a WMF design review meeting (every Thursday at 2PM UTC). I would be happy to help you organize any open questions into a simple presentation, and then follow-up with you afterwards to resolve the decisions.

@alexhollender_WMF - could you show an example of the current state? We'll be ready with this change before any changes are made to the main menu. Would the expectation still be that the main menu opens over the banner?

@mewoph now I see @Tgr's comment I see this is slightly different from that one (likely a workaround for that issue), and something probably the web teamcan look into.

@alexhollender_WMF here's a before / after (can start a patchdemo if needed). Do you think this is okay on the short term?:

alexhollender_WMF added a comment to T306660: [Goal] Table of contents on narrow screens in vector-2022.

The biggest UI problem I'm seeing with the TOC on vector-2022 is on narrower screens, there is a control to collapse the left sidebar, which should free up space - except all of that verticle space is still consumed by the TOC (or empty space for the TOC). Perhaps if it collapsed with the sidebar?

@ovasileva @sgrabarczuk maybe something like this? not sure if mentioning "Vector" is too technical?

@ovasileva @Jdlrobson I think we can get a decent amount of space back with a few small changes...

@Jidanni does this task concern how the tabs look, or some non-visual/code aspect of the tabs? if the latter, please ignore this comment.

@Jdlrobson I just deleted that <li> from the table of contents, but i'm still seeing the fade extend beyond the width of the table of contents:

Ah, sorry, I should have said long words in titles! Of course titles wrap at spaces, that is not the issue.

@XanonymusX interesting...long titles/section links should be wrapping. if not, that's a bug. can you include a screenshot of what you're seeing? for me I see this:

I'm a bit confused as to why the ToC/sidebar has suddenly become so large.

Can you please include a screenshot, as well as noting whether or not your browser window is zoomed in at all?

I was also surprised to see that overflow of long titles is not handled at all at this point. Well, I'll be patient.

@Cabayi @XanonymusX please join us over at T306660 to discuss the issue of the table of contents on narrow screens. If you can include a screenshot, as well as details about your workflow (why do you make your screen narrow, do you need the table of contents when your screen is narrow, etc.) that would be super helpful.

@TheDJ if you have a moment could you add some thoughts here. Particularly curious about why you make your screen narrow, and whether or not the table of contents is useful to you when your screen is narrow.
